Aquatic Water Services undertake specialist projects associated with potable water, wastewater, freshwater and marine water environments and have recently delivered a project which could revolutionise the working practices of the fish processing industry, minimising the waste streams, expanding on fish/shellfish products and new markets and providing job creation in rural fishing communities.

Aquatic Water Services were commissioned by the Newlyn Fish Industry Forum and the South West Regional Development Agency to explore options for the utilisation, treatment and disposal of fish/shellfish waste (fish waste products).
All the work conducted focused on product development to utilise within a new Seafood Park facility at Stable Hobba, Newlyn.

The study was divided into three main components:

COST/ BENEFIT ASSESSMENT OF OPTIONS
The development of “added value” products within the Cornwall Fish Processing Industry.

WASTE CHARACTERISATION
Solid fish/shellfish waste profiles and trade effluent charges for each specific fish processing operation.

PILOT PLANT
To gather engineering data on the consumption of various fish related waste streams by
“Gammarus” shrimps.

The success of product development in Newlyn could be regionally adapted to a number of sites up and down the UK coastline.

Ultimately, the Newlyn template may be one regional solution to help a world wide problem with sustainable development and the elimination of waste within the fish processing sector.
